Could you go into a little more detail on the camera work and how some of the technical things were executed. Did you operate the shot? It was done beautifully.

Very nicely conceived!

 

Looks like: cut point from Steadicam to Snorri happens with the rock throw (which itself looked like CGI), hidden in the sudden dutch. The most interesting transition is then from Snorri to handheld, that appears to be seamless and I'm curious how the camera was liberated. Handheld to Techno during the empty frame of sky between the two rifle shots. I'm also curious if it was shot on an overcast day with full sky replacement, because that's way too much to happen during magic hour.

@Chris - Didn't work on this.  Here is the making of with only a couple glimpses of them shooting. https://vimeo.com/62726795

So, I'm amending the "too much to happen during magic hour" part, since they apparently shot over three days, so...all day to rehearse each of the three segments and then shoot at dusk. NICE.

 

You can see the beginning of the handoff from Snorri to handheld--still wondering what their quick-release mechanism might have been.

 

I kind of love that the making-of has so little production BTS and so much laughing, eating, drinking, reading of graphic novels and smiling. Better way of life! (oh, and most importantly, no self-important interviews).

@ 3:01 on the BTS it looks like a RBQ used sideways so the op can release with left hand
